Amon Amarth Interview 7/7/13

We had a chance to sit down with one of Amon Amarth’s founding members Olavi Mikkonen on their Denver stop for the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. This time around we had the opportunity to discuss their current tour and the upcoming European tour with Carcass and Hell. We also had a chance to talk about their famous Viking ship stage prop and their limited set and set list for this festival. Olavi also briefly discussed the comparison and contrast between European Festivals and American festivals like the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. We then had a more detailed discussion about their new album Deceiver of the Gods where we touched on the differences for this new record in comparison to their older catalogue, the idea behind and design of their limited box set, future music videos for the release, and working with legendary producer Andy Sneap. For last, we discussed the bands utilization of online social media resources, more specifically the promotion of the new album through ‘Reddit.’
